Rod Quantock
The man who, rubber chicken on a pole, once took bemused Melburnians on an impromptu tour of unlikely places, leads his audience up the stairs at the Swiss Club singing Eidelweiss.

How Do You Like Your Eggs
Andrea Powell delivers quick random humour embedded in a punchy and well crafted self-written script, as she talks to her audience about her personal experiences of modern dating including the many ‘nutjobs’ she has encountered.

Phobia
A detective develops a fear of heights after a chase across city rooftops leads to a near fatal fall. It’s this weakness that will prevent him from saving the wife of a close friend from falling to her death from a bell tower. Sound familiar?

Il Trovatore
This is an original and powerful production that blends history and realism with the fantastic and the romantic. Musically it is satisfying and uplifting. Dramatically, it grows from an uncertain opening to a lively and passionate second act.

The Curious Pain of Louis XIV
A Mistress, Black Magic, Adultery and a King with an anal fistula. This music theatre production appears to have it all, but the sad truth though is that despite some genuinely decent performances from the ensemble the piece as a whole was lacking.
